Can't install MCreator versions starting at 1.7.8

Not applicable
Issue description

I'm sorry to bring it up again but I can't download the newest version of MCreator starting at 1.7.8 and up. If you know how I can fix it, please let me know. Here's the error log of 1.8.0:

I know I have an incomplete download of it but when it's hapenning on every MCreator version starting at 1.7.8, I think it has a problem. Thank you for reading this.

Go to your user folder. In this folder, go to the folder called .mcreator. Here delete the folder called gradle. After you do this, make sure to have an internet connection without firewall or antivirus controlling it for MCreator and run the setup again.

Thank you for your help! I'm currently installing MCreator 1.8.1 and i can tell that it works fine in the download. I followed you step and it works. Again, I'm sorry that this post was made 3 times but now, I just need to follow your step if the problem persist.

Peace and out!
